Step by Step Guide Using a X99 MICRO 2 MB
SHOULD BE THE SAME STEPS  FOR ALL EVGA X99 MB's

Parts Used:
EVGA Micro 2 mother Board
Intel 5820K 6 core 3.3 ghz  processor
GSKIL "Trident "Z" quad channel 4 x 8ghz 
Samsung 950 pro M.2 512 ghz 
EVGA 980 ti Classified Video Card
EVGA 850 G2 Power Supply
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STEP #1:
Lets start with the BIOS Revision:
(1.03 when written)
It is a "FIRST STEP" to having the Newest tools for the latest hardware in your system !!!!!
 
evga does a "Great" job of keeping up with BIOS Tweaks
It is vary important that you have the "Newest BIOS" revision loaded onto your Micro 2 Mother board FIRST
 
Latest revision can be found here:
http://forums.evga.com/EVGA-X99-Series-f98.aspx
 
BIOS Installation

  • Extract the contents of .zip file to USB flash drive (must be formatted as FAT32)
  • Reboot the machine and go into the system BIOS
  • From the BIOS, navigate to the Save & Exit tab and open "Select BIOS File."
  • Select the .bin file you wish to flash from your USB thumb drive.
  • Install and reboot 
Please Note:
After Flashing your BIOS you will need to press the F12 key the first time to get into the BIOS 
There after, it will always be the "DEL" key to get into the BIOS

 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
STEP #2:
The Samsung 950 Pro M.2 ssd  
NOTE: If you are running a 951 instead of the 950, some people report The SM951 needs to be formatted as GPT. first
 
Getting the BIOS to recognized this super fast M.2 stick is easy if you follow this:
Many people have problems with getting windows to recognize and load on this super fast Hard drive.
With "Default Settings",  the BIOS doesn't see the M.2 drive so neither will windows !!!!
 
There are a few steps to get the BIOS and windows to recognize the M.2 ssd
 
#1
UEFI must be enabled found under "BOOT" manager
 

 
 
 #2
Make sure to enable M.2 support (Found under the advanced tab)
and that "Improve Compatibility" is also enabled

 
 #3
Check to see that "CSM configuration" is enabled and that "UEFI Storage" is enabled (OPTIONAL)
 

 
#4
Now "SAVE" & Re-Boot your system then go back into the bios
(Press "DEL" key while rebooting)

 
 
 #5
Make sure "UEFI" is enabled in the "Fixed Boot order"
And you should see Windows Boot Manager in "Boot Option #1"
 

 
 #6
If Not
Check that the UEFI Hard Disk is set to "WINDOWS Boot Manager" under "UEFI Hard Disk Drive Priorities"
 
 

 
 
After a quick "SAVE & RESET" Boot back into the BIOS,
You should now be able to see the Windows Boot Manger as your First selection for "BOOT OPTION #1"
 
 #7
Now to Change your boot Order...............
How are you loading Windows?
USB stick or CD Drive ?
Change the Boot order in the BIOS to reflect which devise should be detected first, seconded, Third and so-on


 
 Save and restart..........
YOU ARE NOW READY TO LOAD WINDOWS
load windows as normal
 
I used a USB thumb  drive to load windows

Boot into windows and Un-Check  Win 10 Power Button setting called "Turn on fast startup"
 

 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STEP #3: (OPTIONAL)
Overclocking the  RAM ( I chose GSKILL "TRYDENT "Z" 3200 4X8ghz)
Some folks have gotten 3200MHz to work without any issues at all with their Haswell chips, while other folks can't get past 2400MHz**. (**From the Moderator: It should be noted that higher rated CPUs may not experience this. The i7 5960X for example has a default of 2133MHZ)
  
I found that my ram likes to have a High Voltage (Mine liked 1.35v and 1.400v)
and I was able to achieve a "Stable" 3200 Clock speed buy setting "XMP" in bios to #1
and Manually  clocking my voltage to 1.350v's
 
 

 
PLEASE NOTE:
After changing to "XMP1", your CPU will automatically change Clock speeds (Over Clock)
this is normal and expected when changing to "XMP1" 
so continue to STEP #4 below to change CPU clock speed to your liking....
 
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STEP #4: (OPTIONAL)
OVERCLOCKING the 5820K
What Clock speed is best 3.8, 4.0 or 4.2 ?
 
Overclocking the 5820K is straight forward
I found a great guide to follow and it worked
http://forums.evga.com/EVGA-X99-Quick-Overclocking-Guide-m2208949.aspx
 
The issue for me is I have such a small case that I get a lot of ambient  heat from overclocking
When over clocking, you want to run the lowest Voltage possible so  you can get you a lower temperature 
I have been able to Overclock my Processor to 4.2 ghz at 1.175v but I don't like the temps I'm getting (48 idle)
So I run my 5820K at 3.8 ghz buy using the "Adaptive" setting in the "Overclocking" tab in the BIOS (See Photo Below)
 
After manually setting all my cores to 3.8
I followed the steps below:
 
 #1
Set "CPU Voltage Mode" to "Adaptive"
 
 #2
Set "CPU Target Voltage" to 1.00
 
 #3
Set the  CPU "Offset voltage" to 1.270 (or try lower and test)
 
 

 
 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 I figured I would put together this guide to Help others out and "Pay It Forward"
for all the help I have received from this awesome community !!!!!!
 
and now I have the fastest most reliable fun computer I have ever had
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I hope this can help at least One person
 
Best Regards Rick

    Hi, I think you should overclock on 4.0GHz, try with default voltage, adaptive.
    You don't need to afraid if temps are 45C in idle.
    Put Power Mode in Windows on Balanced and temps will drop below 40C...
    And when you play games turn on High Performance.

    I do not have a m2 ssd so I can skip this step. However, in terms of the i7 5820k OC, I cannot get to 4.0. No matter what I do, windows does not load beyond 3.8. Any recommendation?

    hello
    over clocking to 3.8 stable is awesome and where I run most of the time
    I can get all the way to 4.2 but Windows is not stable
    so I can only get to 4.0 stable
     
    It can be the "Luck of the draw" (Silicon lottery) 
    But you should be able to get to at least 4.0
     
    Are you in "Adaptive mode or?
    Have you raised your CPU off set voltage to +125 or a bit higher ?
    What ram are you using? is it over clocked too?
     
    Try messing with all the settings one at a time to slowly bring your processor speed up
    It's a process of elimination (Game) to find that sweet spot
     
    200 MHZ more isn't really going to make any difference
    Performance and stability is what your looking for
     
    im a graphics artist and need performance but have to have stability

    I am using adaptive voltage. I have tried with the 1.175 v to get to 4.0 and even 1.3000 v it does not work. I do not know what is the problem. I cannot get beyond 3.8. My ram is working with the XMP profile at 2666 mhz.

    Ok start from scratch
    lets turn off XMP and everything else (Stock BIOS)
    Lets just try getting your processor to 4.0 first
    then if you do get it to 4.0 then you can start playing with ram
     
    Give this a try and see what happens

    Without the XMP. I tried 1.150v, 1.175v, 1.200v at 4 and it did not work. When I used 1.200v, it only loaded windows one time and then crashed in the Stress test. It never loaded windows again! Can I play with other options beside Voltage Target and the Offset target?

    That's what I thought
     
    so that tells me that you got a low processor.......(Silicon lottery)
    When it comes to overclocking processors, every CPU is different. Imperfections during fabrication cause each CPU to have different limits in terms of clock speed
     
    Look at this site
    https://siliconlottery.com/collections/2011-3

    So here's  my experiance with X99 mother boards
     
    I have used Gskill Trydent 3200 then I tried Corsair Vengance 3000
    then I tried EVGA 2667 ram all on XMP
     
    They all made different problems with my Micro 2
    in a whole.........
    The  X99 Mother Boards are Very Very finicky about the kind of RAM it uses
    and how it will preform so you have to sacrifice one thing or the other
     
    But again the thing is that the x99 is already Quad channel ram with 8 or 12 cores processor
    so why try to over clock?????
     
    so you have to ask yourself a question
     
    Do you want to be able to over clock for bragging rights and gaming?
    then buy a 170 chipset mother board
     
    do you want to be able to do video editing and work with Photoshop and Adobe products?
    Then buy a x99 chipset
     
    The X99 chipset is already smoking fast stock with tons of band width for massive production
    and also the buss speed on the x99 mother board can only go as high as 2400 or so using XMP
    to get 3000 or 3200 is senseless
     
    I say run your ram at stock speed and enjoy 3.8 stable
     
     
    Regards Rick

    To be honest I just wanted to get to 4.0 because I saw everyone could do it easily and it looks "cool". But you are right, my motherboard has no problem to run at 3.8 with the XMP at 2666. So, I will keep it that way.

    I opened my PC to see the CPU just in case. It looks kind of weird in the bottom. It looks like a part is darker than the other one. Also, it looks it kind of dirty or something. I did not remember that my old i5 looked like this. I better show you pictures and you tell me if everything is ok.

    That doesn't look good.  
     
    How does the socket and its pins look?
     
    What cooler did you use for the CPU?  
     
    I think you should create your own thread before this OCing guilde gets thrown in the deep end.  If a moderator can help us here and move this to a complete new thread, would be great.

    The sockets and pins look good. I use a corsair H75 as the cooler. Should I send my CPU to Intel or something?

    I agree ..........
    This is a different problem and needs to be discussed on a new thread


    Jet_Bl4ck87 
    Please start a new post in the X99 mother board section
    so as to get the appropriate response about this problem

    you did set it to 1.25v and not 125v?
     
    another thing to note is you want to get your RAM stable before messing with the CPU, System Agent voltage is the key i.e start @ 0.350v and work up

    Re: X99 Micro "2" Complete GUIDE Setting it all up !! 2016/12/03 06:29:17 (permalink)
    what i believe to be wrong in this is
     
    STEP #3: 
    Get your RAM stable first,
    timing should be entered manually as memory volts, don't use XMP.
    to get your memory stable and showing fully you need to increase the system agent voltage start at 0.350 and work up till stable, i have 64gb of corsair 3000mhz my system agent is set to 0.450
     
    STEP #4:
    "CPU VIN" should be set to 1.95v give the CPU enough oomf to get it going
     
    If you using offset/adaptive you only want to set that @0.050 then CPU voltage Target to 1.25 never go above 1.40v it's not good for the chip, if you do intend to go above that value intel offer a chip replacement service, (statement removed)
     
    the silicon lottery is a urban myth, once your X99 starts responding to the sweet voltages the sweet frequencys start flooding in and voltages can either be reduced or increased, softly softly catchy monkey
     
    my 5960x will happily bench @4.8 when i got the thing to start with it i couldn't get it to go above 4.2
     
    Never Push the x99 to hard to start with or you'll get a black bummed CPU
     
    i have no interest in dissecting or rubbishing the @ops post, as i say great part about enabling the M.2, but off your trolly regarding voltages your trying to feed it!

    strangely enough i didn't take my meds till later than i should today, but that wasn't my issue that i saw with this thread, the @op and myself have spoken about what has been said and what i've brought to the thread, that's what the forums are about, are they not?

    what i believe to be wrong in this is
     
    STEP #3: 
    Get your RAM stable first,
    timing should be entered manually as memory volts, don't use XMP.
    to get your memory stable and showing fully you need to increase the system agent voltage start at 0.350 and work up till stable, i have 64gb of corsair 3000mhz my system agent is set to 0.450
     IN MY GUIDE MY RAM IS STABLE FIRST
     
    STEP #4:
    "CPU VIN" should be set to 1.95v give the CPU enough oomf to get it going
     
    If you using offset/adaptive you only want to set that @0.050 then CPU voltage Target to 1.25 never go above 1.40v it's not good for the chip, if you do intend to go above that value intel offer a chip replacement service, attacking a chip with 2.270V is so wrong
     
    the silicon lottery is a urban myth, once your X99 starts responding to the sweet voltages the sweet frequencys start flooding in and voltages can either be reduced or increased, softly softly catchy monkey
     
    my 5960x will happily bench @4.8 when i got the thing to start with it i couldn't get it to go above 4.2
     
    Never Push the x99 to hard to start with or you'll get a black bummed CPU
     
    i have no interest in dissecting or rubbishing the @ops post, as i say great part about enabling the M.2, but off your trolly regarding voltages your trying to feed it!
     
     


    I'll try my best to explain.............


    Im not sure how things work on a ASUS but these steps were
    taken directly from EVGA's overclocking guide so I will trust EVGA to know what they are talking about


    Step #3
    XMP profiles are there for a reason
    I dont want to have to mess with voltages  for my GSKIL ram
    when XMP1 is perfect at 0.350 and I get 3200 mhz without any effort
    PLEASE NOTE ........
    when switching to XMP1 your processor will automatically overclock as the voltage has to change with this profile
     
    Step #4
    Using "Adaptive" settings and changing Voltage to +127 is a recommended setting by EVGA
    and is here in my guide as a great starting point
    If you look at my CPU voltage in the picture above you will see that my CPU voltage is at 1.75V  NOT  2.70v as you state
    So i'm really not sure that you understand how adaptive setting work here

    As far as "Silicon Lottery"
    I am taken back by your statement " silicon lottery is a urban myth"
    Microsoft's own web site explains 
    that the Silicon Die's come out with a huge mhz tolerance 
    and that they are Binned accordingly.........

    if you are getting 4.8 stable then that's incredible and you are very lucky 
     

     
    Best Regards, Rick

    This Thread Would be a Great Sticky for the X99 Area if it could be cleaned up.

    I'm seeing a few complaints about this thread. I have noted no violations of the EVGA forum rules and as moderators we have to be objective so let me list some things here:
     
    1: The OP is trying to help with his own knowledge
    2: The steps given may not agree with everyone. I think post number 21 helps clear things up a bit.
    3. Arguments against come of the steps in the OPs post are forum members worried about safety, nothing wrong with being overcautious
    4. The OP refers to the overclocking guide here from Jacob and this is the preferred method for overclocking (http://forums.evga.com/EVGA-X99-Quick-Overclocking-Guide-m2208949.aspx)

    I should also note that if anyone believes they have a better "guide" to setting up the X99 Micro 2 make your own guide with pictures. The moderators will look over all similar posts and can select the best written one for a sticky.

    After the changes that have been made this has been stickied. If anyone has an objective PM me with your reasoning.

    Hello!  I am looking to do a build with the x99 FTW K and was wondering if the m.2 steps still apply or has it been adjusted in a BIOS release.  Meaning does it just recognize it or should I still do these steps?  Thanks!
